Thriftmas person: your stuff is in the mail!
ah yes. the House of Gussaci.
well played lol
nice and vintage... my size too
thanks wimmenz section
Normally Cole Haan is an easy pass for me (as it is for you all as well I'm sure), but these were from their "Benchmade in England" line that was made by Cheany. Retail was $450, not too bad after a nice clean up definitely worth the $3.25 I paid.
Fuck, prolly fits like a m...
Im only now just realising my winter wardrobe is absolutely dire. If anyone has thrifted an unstructured casual cotton blazer and cable knit jumpers in S/M I'd be interested in taking them off your hands. Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask. Thanks.
Still up working on small leather goods. Card Case Prototype #2 and Key Hook Thing #1.
I think I'm getting caught up on PMs, but I apologize for the delay to everyone that has been waiting to hear back from me!
A reminder: It's 100% okay to post your gifts/thanks in this thread, but there is also a dedicated thread you can post them as well:
The 4th Annual Thrift Thread Gift Exchange Unveiling
I'd love to have a bunch of posts in this thread so I can point new guys to it next year. A lot of first-timers are unsure of what to get/what is normal, so it would be great to have a bunch all in one place. They'll be terrified if all they see is @My Main Man's incredibly thoughtful and personalized gift!
Great pictures and nice looking jackets! I read that there was a stabbing at Art Basel this year and that some witnesses were confused, thinking it was some sort of installation art?
Oh, and did you happen to have a guest in your hotel room ( ) or do you do the same thing I do, use one bed to lounge around and eat and the other to sleep?
@330CK I was wondering if you went this year...the 2nd jacket looks rad! very CDG'esque.
Another huge shoutout to @SpooPoker for another awesome meet-up.
Dude woke and stayed up til 3AM so I could 'shop the swap' for 3+ hours. The LuxeSwap store is far from completion, but the vision is great!
Followed that action with a day of thrifting, you'd be surprised how much a Ghibli can pack in, definitely big enough to throw a body in the trunk if the need ever arises.
Topped things off with an amazing dinner at a local spot, where the cougars were on the prowl, and the dancing was fierce. My wife keeps telling me how much fun she had.
that's right, I'm based in London. @thebuddahman - in terms of trading, I'm always interested in that. Shoot me a PM. I know @HansderHund was gauging interest in setting up a European trading thread - I'm not sure if that came to anything though.
I was listening to a podcast which picks the best of other podcasts, and this one about Chicago tailoring came up: https://thedistance.com/richard-bennett-custom-tailors/
Quite a short but interesting insight into the world of tailoring. Thought it may be of interest to you Chicago thrifters.
Miss being down there. Ultra makes Art Basel look like a Narcotics Anonymous convention tho
